It is always a good practice to search out any donation request that you receive by, phone, email or website as there are alot of scams put together by scammers to strip people of their hard earned money. Never give donations in the form of cash added to gift cards or prepaid debit cards. When people make these kinds of request, its probably a scam. If someone contacts you by phone and request money, ask of you can come in person to make donations. If they decline your request its probably a scam. If you come across a website that looks legitimate but unsure, you can go to websites like https://trustpilot.com or https://www.charitynavigator.org to see if there's any complaints against the source in question.
